Everyone needs to stop being sick! I feel like we are surrounded. I guess Utah is having record numbers of people with the flu this season, and I don't want our family to be a number. We don't do flu shots, so we are keeping the sickness away with extra juice, tons of veggies, and lots of exercise and fresh air. (knock on wood).
This is my kids' very favorite juice right now. They drink it down so fast and I love that their little bodies are getting blasted with sickness-fighting vitamins and nutrients like Vitamin C and Vitamin A.
We all love this one!
Bonus: Did you know that ginger has anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties? It's true! I've been adding it in to many of our juices lately.
Double Bonus: This juice is also fantastic with some beet thrown in.
Super C Juice
(makes one large glass)
-1 grapefruit, peeled
-4 mandarins (or 1 orange), peeled. We are still using up our supply of mandarins we brought back from California.
-1/2 lemon, partially peeled. (I left a little peel on the (organic) lemon for extra lemony-ness)
-2 large carrots
-1/2" piece of ginger (play around with amounts of ginger. It really adds such a nice little zing when you get it right. Add too much and your sinuses will be cleared for days (this happened....ouch!)
It tastes like a glass full of sunshine.
What are you juicing this week?
